I personally love Kuching and it is a wonderful place for street photography. There are old colonial building design from the Brooke Family governance era, remnants of the past well preserved, being beautifully integrated within the city area itself. There is mixture of Chinese and Muslim architectural influences as well, seeing temples and mosques being at close proximity to each other. People are always warm and friendly here, and the streets are less congested in comparison to larger cities like Kuala Lumpur. The vibe is differently here, there is a sense of calm and definitely things are moving at a slower pace here.
I roamed around the streets with Olympus M.Zuiko 25mm F1.2 PRO lens on OM-D E-M1 Mark II this time. I did sneak in a shot taken with 45mm F1.8 in the video.
If you do come to Malaysia, and you are not in a rush, consider stopping by Kuching in Borneo. You won’t regret it, I promise!
